ABOUT AMON TOBIN:
Musician, programmer, recording artist, beatsmith, dance floor commander, composer, sound designer. Amon Tobin is all of these things but most of all a forward thinker. Pushing forward and never looking back has always been his focus. This is what gets him up in the morning and what keeps him up late into night.
Amon Tobin’s ISAM Live North American tour last year was one of epic proportions. It set a standard for things to come with both world wide mainstream acclaim and local Twitter trending topics at every turn.
“Nothing less than awe-inspiring” -Billboard
“The concert of the future, today” -Gizmodo
“ISAM’s live show looks like a mindf*&k of the highest order.” –Wired
“the ISAM Tour is a unique music experience that will most certainly be a creative benchmark in the next generation of live music technology
“How do you explain to someone how genius and perfectly expressed a piece of art is unless they’ve had a personal experience with it? You can’t.”-URB
“Stop by Tobin’s website or pull up any of the numerous YouTube clips under “ISAM live,” and you’ll see evidence of an eye-popping kinetic spectacle that makes recent outings by Daft Punk, Deadmau5 and Richie Hawtin look like soft-coded light shows” -Time Out New York
